  • Anonymous from Chicago Sosa nickname actually is based on the Chicago Cubs baseball Sammy Sosa Understand me lyrics “b**** my name is Sosa you can call me Sammy”
  • Anonymous from AtlantaLove Sosa by Chief Keef is not about Sammy Sosa the baseball player. It is about Sosa the guy who went after Tony Montana in Scarface and killed him at the end. Good Grief
